5 Shows After Dark: There is Too Much TV, Guys
The X Factor on Fox at 8:00pm ET. Two hour, third season finale.
20/20: The Year on ABC at 9:00pm ET.
The Returned on Sundance at 9:00pm ET. First season finale. This is yet another one of those amazing shows I’m not watching. I’d pretend I’d get around to it, but let’s be honest it’s probably never going to happen. I mean, it’s in French for god’s sake.
Saturday Night Live Christmas on NBC at 9:00pm ET. How many people are watching this because they enjoy it and how many are watching out of a weird sense of obligation or cultural conformity? You don’t have to raise your hands, just think it silently to yourself.
My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding on TLC at 10:00pm ET. Heading into the weeds known as “winter hiatus” these days.
